In celebration of Performance-based Standards’ (PbS) 20th Anniversary, PbS challenged facilities to step outside of the box and participate in the PbS Kids Got Talent contest.


Youths in PbS facilities were invited to submit video or audio recordings of their talents.  We were stunned by the 50 + submissions with over 70 performers.  Performances ranged from singing and dancing to video art and sports tricks.  Each and every performance was unique and entertaining.  After viewing all the entries, the field was narrowed down to eleven top finalists.  Next, the 11 finalists’ videos will be reviewed by a panel of six judges, who are professional film makers and national youth justice leaders. The winner they select will be notified at the beginning of June and be invited to perform live at PbS’ 20th Anniversary and Awards Gala Aug. 14 in Indianapolis!

We are happy to announce The Fabulous Females from the Illinois Youth Center - Warrenville in Warrenville, IL have made the finalist list!  Under the direction the Storycatchers Theatre, The Fabulous Females do an amazing musical performance entitled “Someone You Can Trust”. It was inspirational and heartwarming.

Thank you all for sharing you incredible voices. Stay tuned for more blogs about the finalists.
